On topic: this could be great for the increasing elderly population,which has several issues concerning drug administration. As others have noted however, safeguarding the device from malfunctioning should be paramount.

I think it's pretty dumb that they would implement any sort of networking capabilities into the chip. The chip should be programmed beforehand to administer the doses at set intervals.

If any changes need to be made then well... they'd have to take it back out or run a tiny wire through your body into it to reprogram it.

^That kind of defeats the purpose or limits the benefits then. You'd have to go back into a surgery or something just to get it set to treat another thing. Personally, you could solve the hacking problem with limiting the range sensitivity of the receiver to something extremely close and making it need a hardware/software authentication that only the doctor would have. So a person would still go to see a doctor but they wouldn't need to be cut open or poked every time they needed a treatment change.

Did you spit your meds out Mr. McMurphy?? If Mr. McMurphy doesn't want to take his medication orally, I'm sure we can arrange that he can have it some other way. But I don't think that he would like it.

"Being able to control it" is just the opposite of what it's designed to do.
We will literly be trusting lives with A.I.
If only A.I. had never failed us in the past...

Wait what?

You know A.I means artificial intelligence right?

1. True A.I doesn't exist.
2. We're not trusting a computer intelligence to decide under its own awareness and make its own judgement about what it should do, its a pre-programmed process.

Great point and idea. The chip could work just like tracker chips work in dogs and cats. You don't see dogs and cats with these chips being exploded by hackers. The chip can simply be designed to require a very close scan from its intended programming device inches from the skin, and it would require that the device remains within close range. Maybe you would visit your doctor, have a patch applied over the location of the chip, which then transmits whatever necessary adjustments are made by the doctor on their system.

Why is it that the second an implantable chip of any kind is mentioned people go nuts and start screaming about government mind control, tracking, new world order, etc....? Pacemakers have been around for decades. Someone could've snuck a tracking device into an artificial joint a long time ago.

 

At any rate this is awesome.
